Default Stanley Cup Playoffs. Round One. Bring on the Sens!

Last year, Pens fought their asses off to get the 4th seed. This year, they kinda stumbled into it - losing every meaningful game against the Caps and Devils to get there.

Not a confidence builder for me, but, we'll see if they can find the light switch in the dark,

Sens just lost their best forward Kovalev - torn ACL.

If the Pens lose the first game against the Sens - panic will ensue.

Pens in 6.

Kovalev is not the Sens' best forward - Daniel Alfredsson is. His numbers are down only because he missed 15 games due to injury this year. Jason Spezza is another one, but he has a history of not being a great playoff performer. Basically this series will come down to whether or not the Pens can play their game. If they do, they will make life miserable for the Sens, because after Volchenkov and Phillips, their defense is average at best. If they are flat, it'll give the Sens every reason to think they can beat them. They will also need Brian Elliott to play better than Fleury if they are to have any chance of winning this series.

I also say Pens in 6. They are the better team and they will prove it to the Sens once again.

Pens in a five and I'm not worried about this team. They're battled tested enough and I'm sure they will turn on that extra gear once the play-offs starts.

New Jersey winning the Atlantic hasn't won them much. They've been poor in the playoffs recently.

Series starts Wednesday:

Wednesday, April 14 at Pittsburgh, 7:00 p.m. TBA
Friday, April 16 at Pittsburgh, 7:00 p.m. TBA
Sunday, April 18 at Ottawa, 6:30 p.m. TBA
Tuesday, April 20 at Ottawa, 7:00 p.m. TBA
*Thursday, April 22 at Pittsburgh, 7:00 p.m. TBA
*Saturday, April 24 at Ottawa, 7:00 p.m. TBA
*Tuesday, April 27 at Pittsburgh, 7:00 p.m. TBA

Only 2 day break is between games 6 and 7, if it gets that far. Sounds good to me. HTG and I will be at the game on Wednesday - can't wait!

Best Performance in the last 3 years was 2007. That same year they lost to Ottawa in the next round.

Anyway. I see this series going 6-7 games. Ottawa hasn't made it easy to beat them, and they're not about to start.

NHL.com says they're all on Versus and CBC. No NBC game.

Alright well im going to be super confident and say the Pens go into the game 100% healthy and go out and kick major ass! I feel they will turn it on for the playoffs and become the lethal threat on offense.

Now the defense with Rich Boy Letang and GoGo I am slightly worried. Either way this just will turn out to be a long, good series with momentum going back and forth!

Pens in 6.

Works for me! That means all playoff games should be available on the Jumbotron outside Mellon (assuming they're doing it again this year). We've had a blast there the past couple years.
